Around 40% have credit card debt. And 1/3 of Americans have saved $0 for retirement.
If we want our kids to survive these financial trip hazards and truly thrive, we need to start their financial education early. Our guest today, Liz Frazier, is a leader in the financial literacy movement and she’s helping parents teach their young children about money as soon as possible.
Sometimes, hustling to make more money is not the answer.
Today, Andy talks to Jacob and Michelle Wade, who recently took a “year off” with their family of five. Jacob is a former sales professional and the blogger behind iHeartBudgets and Michelle is a stay at home Mom raising and road schooling their three children.
They sold their home and all of their possessions and hit the road in an RV in the summer of 2018.
Our guests will be telling us why they took the leap and left their daily grind, how they planned their sabbatical and how they’re educating their children on the road.
The FIRE movement (Financial Independence, Retire Early), has become a wildly popular concept over the last decade, but it’s also become wildly controversial.
Today, Andy talks with Lisa Harrison, the writer and podcast host behind Mad Money Monster. She’s had her story featured on major media outlets like Yahoo Finance, MarketWatch, and Forbes. She started off in love with the FIRE movement and idea of early retirement but then had a change of heart.
We’ll be diving into how she discovered FIRE, what changes she made to her lifestyle and what caused her to abandon the idea of early retirement altogether.
In today’s episode, Andy chats with Damian Dunn about how to save for our children’s future.
Damian is the director of personal finance strategies at Your Money Line and is the co-host of the Pete the Planner Show. He’s been working in the financial industry for nearly 20 years and is passionate about providing accessible and affordable financial guidance to anyone seeking it.
